My wife and I have become regular diners at this delightful little restaurant on Tedder Avenue, Main Beach, Gold Coast. We have nothing but accolades, from the very welcoming response from the Maitre'de, wait staff, ambience and food.....don't forget the food...!! The menu has very international flavours. But our favourite, the eye fillet steaks, are time and again cooked to... More

Went for a lunch with the girls. Friendly service but we were the only customers at 1pm. Huge and tempting menu, but a couple of the dishes were disappointing for the price. Lovely atmosphere - I suspect dinner is better here. Will try it.

6 of us for a 7pm dinner - service was very slow and erratic, had to wait a while for menus, then drinks then the meals finally arrived! The waiter and waitress pleasant enough, but think the restaurant was understaffed for the number of diners. The main meals were delicious, however very miserly, especially in relation to the pricing. My... More

Surly waiter. Extremely slow service. Quiet night in Tedder Avenue - so much so there were probably 6 tables occupied here, and we didn't see one patron at a restaurant opposite so you would think they would be busting to attract business. The staff were obvious by their absence. After 45 minutes when we were about to get up to... More

We ate at Provincial last night. We were a table of 4 who booked for 7:30. On arrival we ordered wine, bread to start and our mains. Our drinks and bread arrived promptly and were delicious. At 9:00 we enquired as to where are main meals were. The waiter checked with the kitchen and told us they would be out... More

A good size and attractive setting with choice of indoor and outside undercover beside pavement dining. A well thought out and tempting dinner menu in all categories along with a cocktail and wine list that allows a moderate and acceptable range of choices. We were a group of 4 and all meals were thoroughly enjoyed but no wow factor. Service... More

They have a delicious lunch menu (especially the salads and steak sandwich) in a lovely setting. The service can be a bit hit and miss and the prices are a little on the high side but the food really is delicious. TIP - try their salted caramel brownie,

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews, I am afraid we found the service to be slow, we were told we would have an outside table, however when we arrived they couldn't supply even though one table outside remained unused the whole time we were there. The seafood presented on the Seafood Plate which we both ordered was... More

I've been to almost every restaurant on Tedder avenue and I keep going back here. It's just practical meals done exceptionally well at great prices. Btw they just changed their menu so can't wait to try the new dishes.
